I covered a cake with the recipe from planet cake. Found is easier and will use this for all the fondant covered cake.

Did you find it easy? I made a couple of ganache covered cakes for family consumption, found it easy to work with. I wonder though if it needs to be refrigerated? I didn't refrigerate the ones I made but they only lasted a day before they were eaten. Glad you had success!

I just used ganache for the first time this past weekend and I loved it!! I just don't know what to do with the extra that i have. Will it be ok on the counter or should it be in the frig?

I freeze my left over ganache. I really liked ganache under fondant using chocolate ganache but have really struggled with white chocolate ganache. Dreamdelights did you use white or regular chocolate. If you used white what brand/type did you use.

I used regular chocolate. Ghirardelli dark chocolate. Did not try white chocolate yet but for the white you have to use Couverture Chocolate not easy to find in a regular supermarket. I have a supermarket by me that sell it in blocks. I will try white chocolate next.

No, Ganache doesn't have to be refrigerated.
And any left over can be frozen for up to a Month.
